Review: THE BEST GOODBYE By Abbi Glines



From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.


The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was...


After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.

Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh...something strange about the way she looks at Captain…

Review: ME BEFORE YOU by JoJo Moyes


Genre: Fiction/Contemporary Romance
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.


What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.


Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

ARC Review: RED VELVET CRUSH by Christina Meredith




Release Date: June 14, 2016

Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Page Count: 304 

Rating: 4/5 Stars






Teddy Lee’s mother ran off when she was in second grade. And ever since, Teddy Lee, the often-overshadowed middle kid, has tried to keep her family together. But her older brother Winston usually keeps himself busy with smoking, drinking, and girls, and who knows what else. Her younger sister Billie is occupied with her shoplifting habit and boys . . . and who knows what else. So when Teddy Lee finally takes the songs she’s always written and forms a band, maybe it’ll bring everyone closer together, maybe it’ll be her time to shine. Unless Billie steals the spotlight—and the boy—just like she always does. Christina Meredith explores the complicated relationship of sisters—both the unconditional love and the unavoidable resentments—in a novel full of music, urgency, the first blushes of love, and the undeniable excitement of hitting the road.

How to Break a Reading Rut!




Guyyysss! Oh man...talk about hiatus right?? It’s Risa, remember me??  Here I am stuck in the reading rut of my life. I’m trying to break out of it, but sometimes it’s hard man. If I’m being honest this is kind of the norm for me and usually happens once a year or so. It's a tough gig and usually drives me crazy with guilt...NOT READING MY BOOKS GUILT...you know what I’m talking about!


So anyways, I've been away….being busy and not really doing anything of great importance….but I haven’t really read much and my TBR pile is staring at me with judging eyes. This of course leads to a blog break in which I have posted nothing and now my computer has teamed up with my TBR pile and they are planning a revolt against me…..  Since I seem to be stuck in this drought of words I decided a good way to try and boost myself out of it and get back in the saddle was to do a post….about boosting yourself out of a reading rut….smart right?? Immerse yourself and it shall happen…..no?
